I had a lower premolar extracted and bone graft placed 6 days ago. tooth was fractured and there was likely an infection already there. was put on antibiotics just before extraction. had considerable pain and swelling in the first few days, but pain and swelling remains. Seems to be subsiding day by day but slow. I'd like to ask what a realistic recovery time might be given I am already 6 days out? thank you

it depends on the surgery, and how you are treating it, better and go back to your dentist, so he can see if you need to continue with antibiotics for longer, meanwhile, make a warm water compress twice a day.
